Abstract

Water disinfection is an essential process for drinking water use. One of the water treatment process stages includes the application of Ultraviolet (UV) light to assist with the removal of pathogens and viruses such as Cryptosporidium. The previous review in the UV treatment system explores the optical and reaction of microorganisms to the technology. The aim of this paper is to explore the hydraulics and modelling of the current technology of the UV treatment process. There has been enormous progress made in the process of optimisation using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Due to the expensive nature of the experiments, CFD has emerged as a vital tool. This article explores two essential parts of the UV system that includes the hydraulic system and the modelling. It also explores the effects of design improvements on the UV dosage and overall disinfection efficiency.
